Event description

About this event

Summer Theatre Camp 2021

For the first time ever, Slow Theatre invites youth ages 8-12 to participate in a two-week summer theatre camp to learn skills in theatre, create social connections, and have fun with our team! As a leader in arts and culture in the North State, we are excited to bring our skills and expertise to the stage with young people seeking a creative outlet. Alongside our expert instructor, attendees will learn all about theatre and storytelling, culminating their learning in a performance for an audience of family and friends.

Registration ends on Friday, July 23rd!

What's Included?

This camp is a two-week intensive where children of all skill levels will learn improvisation, role-play, mime, movement, storytelling, and theatre games that help build confidence and increase self-awareness, relaxation, responsibility, creativity and imagination. By focusing on storytelling on a variety of levels such as physical, emotional, imaginative and social, these classes will encourage artistic insight and enhance acting skills. Whether students are interested in careers in acting or simply want to try something new, Summer Theatre Camp will offer an exciting and educational experience for all. The camp will culminate with a public performance in front of friends and family (free to attend) on August 7.

Registration is $200 per student, and supports the development of young people as well as the continued efforts of Slow Theatre to enhance arts and culture opportunities and experiences for our communities.

    COVID-19 Safety

To protect the well-being of everyone, we have designed a socially distanced curriculum and will require masks for all indoor activities throughout the course. All instructors are fully vaccinated.

    About Slow Theatre

    At Slow Theatre, we aim to foster critical engagement with the work of local artists and let the issues of the community dictate our programming. We are based in Chico, California and share our programs throughout the North State.

    Slow Theatre produces The Butcher Shop, our annual, free outdoor summer play for the Chico community, as well as Garage Fest, a two-night festival of local theatre in Chico CA. In addition to these productions, we conduct play readings throughout Chico, host Improv classes for youth and adults, host the Chico Speaks public discussion series, and bring improvisational theatre workshops to Juvenile Hall programs in the North State.

    Every single thing we do is driven by the creativity of local artists and the context of local issues - not by Broadway. Learn more about us here.
